Welcome



Hi.

Welcome. Thanks for reading my novel, and if you haven't read it till now, then I am sure that you are going to read it in sometime.

There must be something that has brought you here. Do you know what is it? You're here because you're either sitting idle with nothing else to do or you're interested to know something more about 'Oops!'. You would not like me calling you idle; so let me assume that you're interested. Aha! Thanks a ton for being interested.

Good, now since I have proven my point, so let me begin.

I can classify each one of you in either of these two categories:
  1. The One with the 'Smiles' a.k.a Smileys
  2. The One with the 'Jhadoo' a.k.a Dry-lies(critics)
To the 'Smileys' -
Just because you liked the novel, I ask you for one favour i.e. to add this link to the above video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d7HYVFvcUis) in your Orkut profile videos or Facebook status messages.

And for you, I would recommend you to read a short-story about the 'Making of Oops!', which will make you see how one's destiny comes on its own without giving any clue.

You are welcome to give your valuable comments and feedback here @ Bouquets-n-brickbats!

To the 'Dry-lies' alias critics -
Just because you didn't like the novel, I request you to keep the fact a secret! Don't tell it to anyone, because you perhaps don't know that criticizing a book does its publicity in tandem. Keep it as a secret in your babies' diapers potholes.

Meanwhile, you too are welcome to give your valuable comments and feedback here @ Bouquets-n-brickbats!

I would love to hear from each one of you.

  4. let me first tell you that i am not an avid reader and not a big fan of books.just read a couple of books. went to a book store with my sister and saw this title and immediately liked it. i purchased it thereof.
    i just finished reading it and it was superrrrrr.....being a delhi-walla u can relate to places mentioned, it feels as if all this really happened. i was hooked on to it :D
    brilliant work and u have to surely come up with a sequel to this. what happens when he goes to US and Ruchi's bday, her mom and if she keeps contacting him through mail or scraps....
    and i dont knw y just bcoz thrs a picture of u, i kept relating kanav to u. had the whole novel in mind, picturing each sequence with your face as kanav and yeah "there is something in this name" :P

    keep writing man ...i loved it and will ask my frnds to read it too....

    i wish i cud see these characters in real....kanav, sameer, anuj, aryan, reva, neetika, neekita and niti...hehe all of them...
    and specially Tanya....stop being possessive....now we all knw how beautiful she is :D

  9. Hey All! Thanks friends for your amazing response! The next book will come around September, much at the same time Oops came. And regarding Shiva's question I would just say that the two are still together, however the story in the novel is totally fictitious.

  11. I haven't read your novel yet..but after reading ur blog..would definitely love to read it :)

  12. Wo, small-towner!! I read somewhere that the "town" you are referring to is Indore. Sir (you pass out after me, but take it as a gesture of respect), in case you didn't know it's not a town and definitely not a small one at that. Having being brought up in Indore, I feel deeply offended and won't read your novel, :D.

  13. @ Prerna - Thanks for your comment. Do tell me how do you find it after reading it.

    @ Styaanveshi - I am sorry to offend you. Thanks for visiting my blog, anyway.

  16. little things make perfection but perfection in itself is not a little thing....... its ur little one, dude ur going for perfection.. god bless u

    ReplyDelete
  17. Hey friends! Thanks for your kind words.

    @Amit - I checked what you said. It's fine in the novel. When I say in bracket 'Rs.20 being spent on my return journey', that is inclusive of everything that has been spent then, and now he is left with just 80 bucks.

    ReplyDelete
  18. @ Shanky - I have never had braces. It was too difficult for me to describe it. I asked one of my friends with braces to share his misery!

  38. Hi Ankur,

    Having been an author for over 3 years now, I'm quite used to such impulsive brash mails. They only inspire me to write more since I believe that if you don't like an author: you stop reading them. If you start abusing him, it just means your words have no value.

  39. Hey Harsh oopss Kanav!!!... Buddy ur Novel Oops! I fell in love with it ... It is a mind blowing novel... i know its being really usual for u bcoz u receive such compliments all the time.. But Seriously its really a heart touching novel .. it reminds me the dayz back of my college and the hostel times... not being an IITian of course ;-) it seems to be surely ur own story happened...coz the pain and love is abruptly seen in ur words....all te best...:):)

    ReplyDelete
  40. Hey Harsh, I liked your book.I liked the humor a lot. Love the simplicity with which you told the story. The picture of an IITian life can be so very well imagined.looking forward for the 2nd one.

  42. Just read your novel. . . Loved it a lot. . . Felt the charming air of love. . . Fell in love too. . . Also cried like a child at the last chapter of your novel. . . Thanks for gifting us such a delightful dose of real love. . . OBRIGADO!

  43. Nice book man. 'm not an avid reader, but read for couple of hours before going to bed. Your book did not let me sleep and I had to finish it in one go. By the time I finished, it was 4AM ;-)

    I really like Kanav, both - the name and the character. I will plan give this name to my future baby. 'Oops' I revealed something publicly ;)

    ReplyDelete
  44. Btw., I just ordered your second book. Keep writing man, but in between your books remind us to check time as well ;)
